Theme Overview:
This Annual Meeting culminates the events associated with ACSA 100. The Boston conference will mark the centennial year that educators from diverse institutions have gathered to share ideas with the goal of advancing architectural education. It will be hosted by the first school of architecture in America, MIT, whose department of architecture was founded in 1865. To mark such an occasion, the conference will critically examine the ground covered by the discipline since its inception, as well as speculate on its future trajectory, the central theme of the conference being the profound impact of digital technologies’ computational and communication capacities on architecture.

Design Technologies as Agents of Change

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Ingeborg M. Rocker to deliver a lecture at the symposium “Design Technologies as Agents of Change” at the GSD.

Thursday, February 23 
06:30pm – 08:00pm
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

As digital design media and digital fabrication technologies emerge as foci of design process, the relationship between architects and engineers is undergoing rapid change in collaborative practices. The development of digital technologies is enabling new processes of design practice and collaboration, allows unprecedented design speculation, and enables human-machine interaction in pursuit of newly hybridized spatial environments. Established hierarchies between tools and problems are increasingly reversed. Among other areas of influence, growing environmental awareness is exploiting new shifts from analytical to generative models of design. These evolutionary forms of technology – design relationships are becoming characteristic in complex projects integrating interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary agents in multi-scalar design problems, where the growing inter-relationship between technology and design is acting as an empowering agent.

Beyond simply exemplifying these emerging phenomena, the event seeks to explore and explicate the implications of these considerations upon knowledge, theory, praxis, research, and education.
